Great Review of my Drawings

James Lipnickas - It Arrived Early no.9 & The Gloaming

jlip

We love the graphite subtleties of James Lipnickas’s work. So strangely sweet and suggestive. John Kilburn from Atlantic Press summed it up perfectly:

James’ work for the drawathon is very beautiful, a bit weird, very atmospheric and slightly menacing. The style in which it is drawn has a childlike quality, cartoonish but well drawn and not overworked. This mix of childish and frightening imagery creates a strange dreamlike aura, like a half forgotten nightmare or nursery rhyme gone wrong. It reminds me of some of my favourite artwork from the first Tiny Pencil and would have worked really well with the Forest theme. The sensations of remoteness and absurdity, combined with clear references to unworldly things feel like a perfect fit both above and below.

Having delved a little further into James work it is clear that he is a true pencil lover, creating beautiful vignettes and portraits of strange characters, animals, adventurers and a few personal heroes. James monochrome drawings, to different degrees, all retain a slightly unnerving and highly satisfying aesthetic that hints at the darker side of things we usually consider familiar or friendly.
